Family pleaser! This was very easy to prepare once I finished the task of taking the leftover meat from out Thanksgiving bird. I didn’t have cream so I used milk and half and half. It didn’t thicken like cream would so I whisked a tablespoon of flour into 1/4 of hot pasta water and stirred it in to the sauce. Not as rich but definitely tasty. Thank you!

I made this for dinner last night using left-over turkey. It was great! My husband claimed the leftovers this morning before I even got a chance - and he's not usually big on leftovers :)

The name is apt - this recipe is supreme! The sauce is simple but delicious. I altered nothing and it came out great. I served it when my brother-in-law and his wife visited, and they loved it. Terrific and light way to use up turkey leftovers at holiday time.
